Fried lamb chops

PT30M

In Bologna, Easter means fried lamb.

Breaded lambs chops remind me of my childhood. I can still see my granny coating the meat in the egg and cream mixture. I can hear the sizzle of the oil as she drops the meat in the saucepan, and smell the fragrance of frying chops. I could never get bored of this dish, It is a feast for the senses. The lamb is encased in a wonderful golden crust, the lemon adds a hit of sour flavour and best of all – you can eat them with your hands!

Once the oil has reached 170°C, fry the lamb chops in 3 or 4 batches, depending on the size of your saucepan. Cook the meat until golden brown on both sides and pink in the middle, for about 4–5 minutes

Transfer the chops to a serving dish lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil and garnish with lemon wedges. Serve immediately
